Question about 2007 Victory Vegas Jackpot

1 Answer

I had to replace the baffels in my stage 1 swept exhaust. There is a little poping between shifting and down shifting, how can I stop this? The baffels I installed were made by Big City Thunder QQ1994. These were recommended by BCT.

Your probably running too rich. The fuel not being burned in the motor sometimes burns up in the exhaust.

I had the same problem with my 03 Vegas when I knocked out the baffels on my Stage 1 kit. I took it to the dealership and they increased the airflow into the intake.

It still runs a little rich, but better too rich that too lean. Mine still pops a little bit, I guess its just the nature of the beast.

If increasing the airflow doesn't do the trick, your going to have to get some more back pressure inside that exhaust, i.e. different baffels that are more restrictive.

Good Luck. Let me know how it goes for ya.

How does my engine brake work?

Engine brakes or Jacobs brake on diesel engines work by using engine oil pressure controlled by a electric solenoid in three stages, the oil pressure is directed to a piston which holds down an exhaust valve slightly approx 2.85-3.5mm.

The three stages of exhaust brake on a six cilinder engine activates two cylinders at a time, cylinders 1-2 stage one, cylinders 1-2-3-4 stage two, and 1-2-3-4-5-6 stage three.

A Volvo engine brass or VEB works kind of the same only it uses a separate lobe on the camshaft to open the valve for engine braking...

Hope this helps..

Make your HOnda Wave/C70/C90/C100 Faster!!

A great and simple way to improve the performance it to super size the barrel and get a big piston.

These bikes will take a bore that can accomodate the Wave 125, CBR 150, Kawasaki 150 pistons. For a 110 wave you can simply over bore the barrel at a machine shop if you give them the piston and they can measure it.

This is a cheap and effective mod. I suggest you also upgrade to a Honda Dash Carb. its better suited to the new swept volume. Removing baffels from the Exhaust will help too.

These are the simplest mods for more power!

if you removed the baffel from the exhaust that will cause this problem, yes it will make it louder but will lose power. if the baffel is out replace it and see if that helps.

hi this sounds like to me you might have a loose baffel in the box, the reason why the sound dissapates when you get to a certain speed is because the baffel is pushed up or down due to the pressure when you slow down the pressure then releases the baffel and it starts rattling again, you might also have a broken clamp on your exhaust or even a missing rubber bush check these out first...good luck

Check your compression tecumseh's are known for the exhaust valve seat poping out of the head. If you have compression check the governor shaft it should only turn about a 1/4 turn.

Shifting up or down, my forward piston backfires.

Popping from the exhausts is common on V stars. It is usually caused by an air leak at the exhaust header. So check this by either check tightening the bolts & using a piece of hose(about 500mm long),one end in your ear, the other at the header(where it bolts to the head). Listen for exhaust leaks. If you hear any replace the header gaskets.A customer of mine very recently fitted 2 gaskets to stop his bike poping after fitting aftermarket pipes. If all this checks OK.Use the hose again to listen for air leaks at the carby inlet manifolds. Air leaks hear cause a lean mixture & can cause backfireing. Also backfireing can be caused by carburettor imbalance.
Hope this helps

Running terible

for one thing the cabureter need rebuilding, and the choke repaired, fix that exhaust leak, most of what you describe relates to fuel, also run some combustion cleaner through the engine, its been running rich and there are deposits causin dieseling when you shut it off, all of this is easy for an older mechanic
